Reseña del editor

When a Viking lander on the planet Minerva is destroyed, sending back one last photo of a strange alien being, Earth's scientists are flabbergasted. Soon, a joint US/USSR manned mission is mounted--a symbol of peace between the two rivals. But that peace is threatened when the mission lands in the middle of an alien war.

Nota de la solapa

When the Viking lander on the planet Minerva was destroyed, sending back one last photo of a strange alien being, scientists on Earth were flabbergasted. And so a joint investigation was launched by the United States and the Soviet Union, the first long-distance manned space mission, and a symbol of the new peace between the two great rivals.
Humankind's first close encounter with extraterrestrials would be history in the making, and the two teams were schooled in diplomacy as well as in science. But nothing prepared them for alien war -- especially when the Americans and the Soviets found themselves on opposite sides...

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Amazing science fiction story! Will we encounter aliens? If so, how much alike are they going to be to us? 18 de enero de 2016

I really enjoyed reading this science fiction novel from Harry TurtleDove. A true science fiction writer with a huge imagination and eye for the fine details in a story. This novel is interesting in that the aliens met within it do look different than humans, yet are similar in ways such as needs and desires. Take a chance and read this book. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Different Mars 15 de noviembre de 2005
Por John A Lee III - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo Compra verificada
"Alternate Histories" can by be fascinating and nobody does it better than Harry Turtledove but most suffer from a seemingly insoluble problem. From the point of departure from "recognized" history, the stories of necessity diverge more and more. In this book Turtledove gets around this problem in a novel way. He moves it off planet.

In this story, earth history is just like we all know right up until the Viking lander. In this universe, though, Mars is not our planet. It is more massive, it has an atmosphere and intelligent life. It is also called Minerva. The last photos taken by the Viking lander on Minerva are of a native Minervan attacking it. This naturally spurs all sorts of efforts to send a manned mission. Since the period is the 70s, the cold war is in full swing and the Soviets and Americans are determined to beat each other. They land at different but nearby sites and befriend tribes antagonistic towards each other. The cold war has moved to the red planet.

The story is interesting enough but Turtledove's real talent is to present ideas in new and differing ways. The Minervans of this story are utterly strange and different from humans. Still, he manages to convey their alien sensibilities in a credible, believable and understandable manner. He also makes us laugh at ourselves.

This is an excellent story and lots of fun.

This would be a good introductory book by Turtledove since it is a stand alone effort. Most of his books are sequential and you need to read the whole series to get to the end of the story. A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE would not leave you hanging should you not like the author's style.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Sci-fi like only Harry can do 8 de septiembre de 2000
Por John Silva - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo Compra verificada
I absoluetly loved this book. So very realistic and compelling. The characters, both human and minervan, are engaging and well devloped. The story could very easily be considered both alternate history or straight sci-fi. This book has been overlooked by many sci-fi fans by Turtledove's more well-known books. That to me is a shame. I would love to see a sequel to this book to see how Earth and Minerva grow together and how each affects the other's societies.
Read this book once and then read it again. You will enjoy it from cover to cover. This book is proof that Harry Trutledoveis one of the masters of Sci-fi/Alternate History.

If you enjoy turtledove novels this will interest you. Sci-fi with great writing the story left some to be desired but the world that turtledove created will keep you interested almost to the end.
